Bionic Tripod 2.0

This horizontal tripod is rotated at 90 degrees from the conventional configuration and can be displaced by up to 90 degrees in any direction within a large working space. The bionic principle of the fish's tail fin is used here in several ways as a three-dimensionally adapted FinRay® structure in energy-efficient lightweight design.

 

The resulting flexibility and pliability make it ideal for tasks involving human-machine interaction, such as sorting fruit and vegetables in agriculture, sorting materials for recycling in industry or as a "third hand" and an ideal helper for all kinds of installation jobs.

 

The integrated adaptive FinGripper and the ball joint with three degrees of freedom and a 30-degree range of deflection, based on the function of the human wrist, lend this tripod maximum flexibility for grasping and depositing objects at various positions and height levels.
